S&C’s System VI Switchgear combines the innovations of Vista UDS with the versatility of S&C Metal-Enclosed Switchgear, in a space-saving, multi-section package. System VI presents an exciting new option for applications through 34.5 kV requiring 16-kA symmetrical short-circuit duty. Vista gear includes 600-ampere load-interrupter switches and fault interrupters, sealed in an SF6-insulated, elbow-connected tank. Using air-insulated bushings on one or both sides of the tank, multiple Vista units can be joined together or to metal-enclosed switchgear modules such as air-insulated metering bays. System VI Switchgear’s operating controls are separated from elbows and cables — just one operator can safely and easily check the status of switches and perform routine tasks without cable handling or exposure to medium voltage.
